Crown Returns

A number of the crowns over my ancient doorways were
missing the returns. So sometime ago I bought a special
router bit which closely matched part of the profile. So with
some judicious routing and sawing of salvaged mahogany I had
suitable pieces to use. I added some square bead and also
literal beads…Mardi Gras beads which I shellaced and painted
to imitate the original wooden pearl bead. 10 feet up the new
returns are indistinguishable from the original crowns.
